No matter where you live in Canada, you’ve probably heard of the Calgary Stampede.  While most people talk about the cowboys, the chuckwagon races and the beer, I prefer to focus my energy and money on the food.

2010 will be my sixth Calgary Stampede, which means if I’m going to be able to eat all the yummy food that I want, I should have stopped eating yesterday.  But no amount of Biggest Loser episodes can keep me away from the all delicious and often crazy variations of treats that the Stampede has to offer!

You know the Calgary Stampede is crazy when they send out a press release announcing which food will be on the grounds this year.  This is why the Stampede is so fun.  Check out some of this year’s choices:

  • Alligator Pizza
  • Taco in a Bag
  • Belgian Waffle-on-a-stick
  • Chipstix’s
  • Chicken–on-a-Stick
  • Cheese-on-a-Stick
  • Pizza-on-a-Stick
  • Cheddar Nuggets
  • Chocolate brownies
  • Strawberry Smoothies
  • Nitro Ice Cream
  • Pickle Chips
  • Meat Pies
  • Pulled Pork Sandwich
  • Pork Parfait
  • Hot beef Sundae
  • Deep fried Dill pickles
  • Deep Fried Jelly Bean
  • Deep Fried Oreos
  • Deep Fried Snickers Bar
  • Deep Fried Strawberry Shortcake
  • Deep fried Twinkie

This year’s Calgary Stampede runs from July 9th to 18th

  1. With every thing which seems to be building within this subject material, many of your viewpoints are relatively refreshing. Having said that, I am sorry, because I can not give credence to your entire plan, all be it radical none the less. It appears to everyone that your comments are generally not completely validated and in simple fact you are generally yourself not really completely certain of your point. In any event I did appreciate looking at it.
